YOASOBI’s “Idol” returns to No. 1 on the Billboard Japan Hot 100, dated Jan. 17, extending its all-time record for weeks atop this chart to 22.

The Oshi no Ko opener is back at No. 1 after 19 weeks — the last time the long-running hit took the top spot was on the chart dated Sept. 6 — and while overall points for the track are down by 13% from the week before, it comes in at No. 1 for streaming, No. 2 for karaoke, No. 4 for downloads and video views, and No. 33 for radio airplay.

Ado’s “Show,” the song tied for second-most weeks at No. 1 (13 weeks) with Official HIGE DANdism’s “Subtitle,” holds at No. 2 this week. Points for “Show” are down by 18%, but the USJ event theme continues to perform well, hitting No. 2 for streaming and video, No. 3 for downloads, and No. 5 for karaoke.

Last week’s No. 1 song, Number_i’s “GOAT,” continues to rule downloads and video, coming in at No. 3 on the Japan Hot 100 this week.

tuki.’s “Bansanka” rises 6-4, breaking the 15-year-old singer-songwriter’s personal record for highest position on the Japan Hot 100. Spotify Japan included the rising artist on its RADAR: Early Noise 2024 list (released Jan. 11), featuring J-artists expected to make great strides this year. This could be one of the reasons why “Bansanka” soared to No. 3 for streaming with 8,893,914 weekly streams, up by about 22%, and No. 8 for downloads with 4,674 units, up 7.7%. The track is also up by about 13% for video (No. 5, 1,655,118 views), and moves 11-7 for karaoke, also the highest position so far for the young artist.

Yorushika’s “Sunny” (Japanese title: “Haru”) jumps 31-8 this week to break into the top 10. The track is being featured as the opener for the anime series Frieren Season 2 and dropped on the day of the season premiere Jan. 5. The track hits No. 2 for downloads with 9,164 units, No. 25 for streaming with 3,660,640 streams, and No. 3 for radio.

The Billboard Japan Hot 100 combines physical and digital sales, audio streams, radio airplay, video views and karaoke data.
